  • Description: Located just north of Calistoga in Napa Valley, California, Chateau Montelena is an iconicestate whose name is synonymous with excellence. Founded in 1882 by Alfred L. Tubbs,this businessman steadily increased production until Prohibition, after which the propertyfell into disrepair. In 1958, Yort and Jeanie Frank purchased the estate and slowlytransformed it into the beautiful property that it is today.When the Barrett family bought the property in 1972, James Barrett focused his attentionon restoring the vineyards, winery and cellar. Chateau Montelena is a true family affair - formore than 30 years, James's son Bo has been master winemaker and responsible for theconsistently high quality of these benchmark wines. Other key members of the winemakingteam include winemaker Cameron Parry, assistant winemaker Matt Cratfon and vineyardmanager Dave Vella.The infamous 1976 tasting in Paris placed Chateau Montelena at the forefront of the wineworld and the family continues to build upon that legacy by producing terroir-driven,authentic wines of distinction.
